Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

The Naples Monitor

What's Inside this Collection.

The Naples Monitor

Depicting the lives and history of the residents of Morris County, Texas, as well as bordering Titus and Cass Counties, The Naples Monitor began publication in 1886, and still continues publishing weekly, representing Naples' oldest running business. Naples, Texas was founded in 1879, replacing the nearby settlement of "Old Wheatsville," which had been established by early settlers in 1850.
